I am currently debating whether or not to attend the summer Wonderful Hearts concert, and before you say, “You fool! Of course you should go!!” please hear me out. The concerts are on August 2nd and 3rd. I will be in Japan staying with friends starting in mid July, but I’ll only have moved to my residence in Saitama a few days before. I won’t be very familiar with the area yet, so I’m concerned that I won’t be able to figure out the train system in time to safely get myself there. Also, I’ll probably be very busy trying to set up house in my new apartment. Finally, I’m unsure whether or not I will have training activities for my job that day. It’s a weekend, and the contract says I don’t work weekends, but since it’s the very beginning, there might be activities anyway. I suppose they might get over before the concerts, but with my lack to train skillz, I don’t want to cut the timing too close. I do really want to go though, and an all Wonderful Hearts concert would be a great way to kick off my year in Japan, wouldn’t it?
Then, assuming that I can work out all of the problems mentioned above, what sort of tickets ought I to get? On the one hand, as a 5’4” 115lb female, I’m worried that if I sit on the main level I will be accidentally trampled by overenthusiastic dancing wota or perhaps take an elbow to the face and break my nose or something. I’d imagine being rushed to the emergency room would be a pretty effective way to ruin my concert-going experience. Also, I don’t really intend to dance along, because I want to actually watch the concert, so I’m worried people might get annoyed if I’m not dancing with everyone. On the other hand, I don’t want to have to bring binoculars just to make out which girl is which. I’m going to the concert to actually see them, and that might be difficult if I’m sitting up in the “family” section.
